I voted for Steel. Once we make this discovery, we may want to consider another quick detour to 0% Science for a few more turns. However, as our treasury seems to be holding up nicely it shouldn't be necessary. :)

You know my opinion; no researching techs we'll get in trading. Stop the research; gather some wealth and we'll get all techs around with trading AT and E when the US and HD finish.

I'd suggest steel. Nationalism we can easily trade for. Trade embargos and the draft aren't too important right now. Radio isn't nesscessary (we will eventually need it to advance to the modern era, but not now.) unless we want advanced flight, which will require flight, which needs steel. Abstain isn't a tech :p . Steel gets us closer to mass production, motorized transportation, and flight. Pick steel; it won't be the 'hardest' decision you've made. ;)

we need steel to modernize our navy and advance to conbustion.

It's the only thing that will last forever after all...
ie. it won't fail due to fatigue alone it's strength will only reduce about 50% never actually due to the fatigue alone unlike Aluminum which will eventually fail from just a simple bending motion. (the things you learn in College ENES classes..... ;) )
